Another one for the boys

February has started with a couple of family birthday's to celebrate which means cards to make :-)  I used my Sugar and Spice 'In a word' and 'Scribble Flowers' stamp sets to make the following card:

As the card was for a my brother in law, I wanted to make something with a 'male' feel so used strong colours - greens and yellows toned with blacks and whites.  I started by stamping the Happy Birthday tile from the 'In a word' set onto black chipboard using white ink.  I then inked up the edges of the stamp with yellow and green ink and overstamped onto the white image. 
I cut out two strips of yellow cardstock and stamped the small happy birthday wording over them to make my borders.

I finished by stamping several images of the largest flower from the 'Scribble flowers' set using black ink.  I cut around the petals to make a funky border which I used underneath my green patterned paper as a subtle accent.

Thanks for looking,
Big smiles,
Nic.
